We use this blog to discuss the Social Security Disability (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs. Both are federal benefits programs that help compensate households that are affected by disability. SSDI, as we have said before, is meant for adults who used to be able to work, but cannot any longer due to disability.
Perhaps a previously manageable condition has become more severe, restricting what you are now capable of doing. Or perhaps you have sustained an accident or illness that has affected your health long-term. Either way, you may qualify for SSDI payments.
